Target Corp. of Minneapolis, Minn., has recalled its white 2-Bulb Floor Lamps. The lamp can short when a standard one-way bulb is fully tightened in the lamp’s three-way socket, posing a fire and shock hazard to consumers. This recall includes white plastic, turned-spindle design floor lamps with white fabric drum lamp shades and two 3-way pull-chain switches. Lamp is illuminated by two 3-way 100-watt or 29-watt CFL bulbs and stands approximately 60 inches tall. The model number PL1071 is located on a sticker on the bottom of the lamp. Target has received six reports of short circuiting which have resulted in fires, minor property damage and two consumers being shocked.
The lamps were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and Target.com from September 2012 through May 2013 for about $70. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lamp, unplug it and return it to any Target store for a full refund. Contact Target at 800-440-0680 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at www.target.com and click on Product Recalls under the Help tab, then click on Home & Kitchen for more information.
